Fun quick little hike, definitely recommended spikes or poles, both would be great but I didn’t have either and was fine.

Loved this hike. Views of the valley, tree's, tree's and more tree's then opening, then tree's then the gorgeous lake. Trail was packed down pretty well until the last half mile or so. Then snowshoes would be helpful but we didn't use them. A sled would have been helpful on the way down as well.

Lots of switchback at the beginning. Gradual climb to Elephant Rock. Trail well packed from heavy used. Didn't need to use snowshoes or chains

Pretty in the snow. Would be a good spot to snow shoe, I was able to hike it today with just boots because the trail had been walked in already. I saw some wild turkeys.

Fun to hike with family and friends. A little steep on the way up but overall a chill hike. We were able to access it easy even in the snow because it’s used quite often.

Hiked on 1/5/19, most area are covered with packed snow, but last 1/4 will definitely need snowshoe.

Hiked this on New year's day and it was great! Lots of fresh snow, but still not hard to find the trail to the lake. The first half (until the fork to Dog Lake) we carried snowshoes because boots were enough, after that (while not entirely necessary, some people only had microspikes) we were glad to have the snowshoes, it certainly made the trek easier!

So beautiful in the winter. Only 1 spot with a little ice. Perfect winter hike!

Magnificent views, deep powder, and beautiful forests.

Great trail to get used to the altitude, first part is a little difficult for out of staters like myself but even with a few breaks you can reach the reservoir fairly quickly. Great mountains views up top and great views of the city valley on the way down. Great quick Christmas hike!

Hiked it yesterday. Beautiful view, and it was nice to get above the inversion for a little bit. There are some ice spots, I used micro spikes for some parts, but they certainly not necessary.

The trail was very muddy today after this week snow started to melt. The trail had nice view to the east of snow capped mountains. Didn't care for the constant roar from the traffic on I-15

Love this hike, it’s so close and easy to get to. Parts of it are icy but I was able to manage only with hiking boots 12.11.18

Amazing hike into the Pfeifforhorn Cirque area!

Got the opportunity to bust out the snowshoes!

Was very tempted to try for Pfeiff, but another day perhaps ...

Skinned up to desolations and skied Powder Park. Snow was phenomenal up top. The further down you went the crustier it was. Beautiful trail, quite a bit of snow up there.

hiked on 11-25. strapped on snow shoes about the dog lake turn off... beautiful this time of year!

Great hike. Not many people. I saw deer both times I went.

Beautiful hike, shaded in the summer, open to the sun in some spots in winter.
Small bits of the path are icy/slushy right now, but most of it is nice fluffy fresh snow. Took about 3 hours up and back.

Nice moderate trail with some switchbacks to get up to the rock. Some benches have been put up at the top, which makes for a nice place to stop and rest. The trail is especially breathtaking in the fall. Accessible all year long. The trail is also really fun in the winter with the snow. Lots of people hike and bike the trail though, so watch out for bikers!

I have probably done this trail 10 times. It is so easy for me to get to from my house and is the perfect distance if you only want to go out for 4 hours.

I used this trail as a training hike for a high-altitude hike in California, and it worked beautifully. I have done it in the warmth of summer and the light snow of late autumn to test my winter hiking gear.

This is a great into hike to the fabulous hikes of Little Cottonwood Canyon with amazing views and an awesome lake to have lunch at before heading back down.

I just moved here fro Oklahoma. This is a great short hike to start reaclimating to the altitude. First .5 miles is rough but the rest is amazing. Would like to see the trails marked better. I got lost but it was easy to get back.

I hiked this on Tuesday. The trail was quite muddy and slick. The lake is frozen and covered in snow. Beautiful little rainbows reflecting in the snowflakes. I passed 5 people on the trail. It took me 3.25 hours.

We hiked to the suspension bridge and did the loop back to our car. The bridge looks magnificent and the hike is nice with great views. The beginning is a little steep, but then loops around and quite and easy hike from the bridge down.

Beautiful views almost the entire time! It was a gradual incline until the last mile before the lake, but still
totally doable. Sadly .5 miles to the lake the snow pack dies out and you would need snow shoes to get through the final section so we had to turn around. Bummer, but the views up to that point were awesome.

This trail is a lovely trail. The only big hill is at the bridge and if you don't want to do the loop back to the bridge there is a trail that will take you directly to the bridge so you can bi-pass it. We went up the hill and around. In total we crossed 3 bridges, a rock cave formation thing and saw the beautiful panorama of the valley. I would say this hike is easy without the big hill. If you add the hill I would say moderate. But I am a weekly hiker.

easy/moderate trail with a long extension if wanted up the little black mountain. no snow right now either. took about 2 hours

I loved the trail. It was lightly trafficked mostly with hikers and a couple of mountain bikers. Got some amazing views from the top and also experienced the snowfall on my way up.

This trail was amazing!
made my legs burn but so worth it!
